BradBartickGood rock  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 22, 2015


Using variations of the route somewhat described from the SE, it is intermittent class 3/4 terrain, perhaps harder if you like, with many options. Amazing how consistently climbable the gendarmes are, and most offer a nice exit. Descent sucked. The second time I did this peak, I approached from due south, probably on a few hundred feet of private property. Aim for the poles on the ridge proper. I tried to place cairns as I descended, which can be followed to the final ridge. It'd be more fun to scramble than ascend my descent line, though. The final 1/8 mile ridge is solid class 3/4' with a great setting. No trail at all to speak of. Loose rock but not bad exposure. If I go back, I'd repeat this route over the other.

Traversed over from Coal Creek Peak. Enjoyable ridge scramble, but the "descent gully" really sucked.

Finally. After 7 attempts on 3 separate, challenging east facing ridges, I made it up.

The wife, pup and I left from the church on CO-72, and climbed these three peaks. There were hundreds and hundreds of lady bugs everywhere!

Cool. Glad you enjoyed it. Was my page of any assistance to you on it?

It sure is steep, good fun! We had to do a similar detour - we didn't feel comfortable free-soloing the 5th class stuff above.
